. two new things. one is foreign policy magazine has a new article out. it's quite a long article. but there is some things that are absolutely stunning, that this happened on 9/11, and the fbi at some point was sent in to investigate. and then on october 26, 6 weeks later, foreign policy magazine went to the consulate, went to the cia annex. they found a draft of two letters. and letters that they have no idea thisf they were ever, ever sent anywhere. but a draft of two letters that the fbi never picked up when they were there. and two draft, talk about this fact that that day, they saw some member of the bolivian police force across the street in the upstairs, taking pictures inside the compound and they were worried and concerned. why that evidence was not seized by the fbi, i don't know. another thing that happened, david ignatius of the washington post, met with the cia. the cia gave them a timeline as to what happened. this is what is new for me. number 1, it appears that the last two who were killed were not killed until about 5:00 hirt in the morning, which fwaifs another
it clear that they also have a very different view on foreign policy. when we entered the war in iraq, they said we should have kept 30,000 troops there. they refuse to commit to an end date on the war in afghanistan, and they openly opposed the signing of an arms control treaty with russia that every single former republican secretary of state, secretary of defense, and national security adviser urged be ratified. >> there is vice president joe biden in lynchburg, virginia. let's go ahead and take you to governor mitt romney. he is in kissimmee, florida, here. just taken the stage there. behind him marco rubio. also connie mack. connie mack represents the fourth district here in florida. >> in english and spanish, and thank you for being here. what a welcome! this is fabulous, thank you. [ cheering ] now let me underline something that connie mack just said. he reminded you that early voting began today. that means that today you can go vote. and it helps for you to vote now because the earlier you vote, the more help you can give us getting other people to the polls? because we're g

[captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] 300,000 people are without power. early boating has been canceled. as an extended an extra day in maryland. president obama is back here in washington overseeing the federal response to the hurricane. mitt romney is taking part in storm relief efforts taking part today. he is in ohio. those coming to the event are being asked to bring relief supplies. bill clinton will be campaigning for the present today at a rally in minneapolis at the university of minnesota. we will have another event this afternoon. paul ryan will drop by a romney campaign office bank
with that. >> also in foreign policy. you will hear a lot of revelations that came out about the tragic benghazi attack and we know that cia operatives for help were denied in the attack. you think the investigation has impact on the undecided voters at this point? >> yeah, i think it will to some extent. he doesn't look good in this, but the more affect is frees the action between sand yethis, the hurricane and libya, you know it really drowns everything else out . for a president is clearly losing right now, the worst thing to have is 10 days was being drowned out and that seems to me what is likely to happen. >> because of sandy dominating the headlines and. >> sandy and libya. >> i mean, what is obvious in libya. what is obvious in libya is hillary cut back on the security and they didn't reenforce. but the reason they didn't is because the president wanted a minimal security presence in the world and so they didn't see american troops and they weren't upset. and then when the attack happened, obama went out for two weeks and lied about it and he said it a popular demonstration gone
where there are more mexicans. you're right. this idea of focusing on foreign policy rather than on economic policy, not a good play. you saw mitt romney try to do that early on. he was in texas, for instance, early on in this race, and talking about those issues. but, again, in texas, that's a state he is going to win. have i been quite surprised that you haven't seen mitt romney out on the stump with people like susana martinez. he hasn't been out with brian sandoval. >> you've named those names. and to that point the ad i referred to might appeal to cuban americans in florida. but we know he has to extend his reach to the latino community beyond florida. with that said, i don't know what he would present on the table with immigration, but he has allies that are available to him, successful latinos within his own party that he has not reached out to broaden a message of, i don't know, economic recovery or whatever, the american dream story that susana martinez forever offered up at the rnc. >> yeah, very powerful message. >> absolutely. >> you heard from that governor. and in r
's sort of how he's promising it. and foreign policy i do fear the hawkishness of the line that governor romney's taken. talking about going to war with iran if they even have the capability to build a nuclear weapon. that's preemptive. and i think that's a very dangerous pattern to go down. we did that before with iraq. i don't think preemptive war is anything more than war. >> it's always food. it's always food. i'm obsessed with a place in east elmhurst queens, a french pastry shop. i've gone there the last two weekends, including taking a big subway ride and hiking over there. it's not near a subway. "argo" i loved the movie. go ben aflex. i think he did a great job. i'm going to be seeing "lincoln." obviously love doris kearns goodwin's book. >> we don't know which one of these guys will be marching towards the finish line on november 6th. this is just you go around the country and people, you go to airports, and the dollar bill didn't come with it but it just sort of seems a nice touch. don't you think? >> we'll have more of my conversation today at 12:00 noon. we're going to talk

. >> mayor, i want to turn to foreign policy really quickly. president obama did an interview with joe and mika that's going to run tomorrow morning in its entirety on "morning joe." this is what he said about the benghazi attacks. take a listen. >> my attitude on this is if we find out that there was a big breakdown and somebody didn't do their job, they'll be held accountable. ultimately as commander in chief i'm responsible. i don't shy away from that responsibility. my number one responsibility is to go after the folks that did this and make sure we get them. i have a pretty good track record in doing that. >> how much has the benghazi attack become a political liability for the president as we head into election day, mayor? >> what you just heard there was a rational commander in chief doing what needs to be done to lead a country. that's what he's been doing for four years. that's how he focused on bin laden and focused on how we need to do positive things around the globe. i'm a mayor, too. i know the moment that something happens, a crime for instance even in my own town, you d
. it is a tand down foreign policy where it is appease we don't want terously feathers and we have dead americans. >> brian: your contact list is full of people who serve. what is the reaction? >> why didn't we use the assets availablitous. spector gun ships stationed 400 miles away in italy that could provide help. and operators on the roof and using lazers to identify where the mortar teem and drones watching the entire thing to develop. technology was there to cut through the war and act. it is pier one operators who could have dealt with complex situation. go after the mortar teem and secure the. act, act. >> brian: captain, thank you so employ. senator mccane made head liance is worse on than watergate. no one died in watergate. the president blaming george bush for the economy. the numbers tell a different store store then donald trump made the president an offer he couldn't refuse. donald trump picks up the phone when we call him in the top of the hour. >> i know some people are nervous about the storm about to hit the coast and our thoughts and prayers are with the people who finds themse
: sure. >> he also made an attempt at the same type of undecided voters. he tried to use foreign policy as his issue. did not work as well. his is more of an attack on mitt romney. let's take a look. >> i'm barak obama and i approve this message. >> wreckless, amateurish. that's when news media and fellow republicans called mitt romney's gaffe filled july tour of england, israel and poland. when our u.s. diplomats were attacked, the "new york times" said romney's knee jerk response showed a lack of presidential character. republican experts said romney's remarks were the worst possible reaction to what happened. if this is how he handles the world now, just think what mitt romney might do as president. >> so negative. so negative. that's not what voters want to hear. the amazing thin is that barak obama attacks mitt romney on of all things, libya? the obama campaign has been the most negative campaign over the last three weeks of any campaign in modern history. compare and contrast that with 2008 when he was the most positive. it's one of the reasons why his favorability ratings have go
romney's foreign policy and i think it's spore addic that really matters. i see this as an opportunity for the romney campaign to try to distract from what is a very serious endorcement from general powell. >> let's get to another topic here, karen. an article in the "washington post." it's a new one that argues there is a high likelihood president obama could win the electoral vote but not the popular vote, which would be a first for an incumbent. could we survive the hyperpartisanship that that scenario would likely cause? >> i don't know, alex. i mean, i really hope that doesn't happen for so many reasons. i think it would be terrible for the country for so many reasons. we've already become so partisan. i'm actually have to tell you they was skeptical of some of the modelling that we've seen going on. i think a lot of the polls and a lot of the modelling has underestimated the number of latinos and african-american voters. we have 8 million more latino voters, for example, voting in 2012 than we did in 2008. most of the polling models i've seen don't account for those kinds of demo
or steel aspects from it -- emulate their engagement policy or steal aspects from a? >> there is not a perfect model. look at some of the work that is happening in india, for example, to try to attract foreign investment and entrepreneurs. i'm not sure -- it is still very early in terms of the results of their. for the last three decades, the u.s. has had, historically, a very healthy immigration policy, but in the last decade or so we have kind of gone the other way. when you think about it, the number of immigrants that have come in and built amazing companies and created jobs in the hundreds of thousands, we cannot be looking at other markets because there is not a perfect model, but we need to look back of the 1970's in the u.s. as an historical model. we have a lot of immigration. a lot of people came in with science, technology, engineering, mathematics backgrounds. if you look at silicon valley, you see the results. >> i spent seven years of my life painfully on the commission of immigration reform which was chaired by barbara jordan and 1990's. i think the wa
